Categories in Sales Layer help you to create a hierarchical tree-like structure which can be useful for organising your Products. This structure can be created manually, in the same way we saw above when importing product information.
Note: in this case, the basic fields are:
The process of importing Categories is identical to that of importing products, and in fact to that of importing variants as well. The fields that Sales Layer recognizes are given a green background, while those that are new are given a white one, and as before the names and types of all the fields are fully customisable.
Note: It is possible to create the category tree also with the Product import, writing the structure directly in a column of the file to import, as in the following example: category>subcategory>subsubcategory
